"It is now winter, and my beautiful garden is not at its best, with furniture, fountains and art objects removed, and the plants dormant. But I still get a great deal of pleasure from the shape and colours that remain, that I can see from my kitchen window every time I enter that room. This summer, and into the fall, I had more pleasure from my garden than I have ever had. After 20 years of trying to make it pleasing, and never being quite satisfied, the help you have given me has made my garden a haven that soothes me every time I look at it, or sit down in it. Thank you for that."
